Mental Health Counseling Intern
I was extremely excited to join the team here at the Counseling Center as a master's level intern. I completed my B.A. in Psychology at UWF in 2011 and am poised to graduate with my M.A. in Counseling Psychology in the Spring (2014). I have also worked as an adjunct instructor for the School of Psychological & Behavioral Sciences. As such, I have a deep love and appreciation for all of the many facets of our diverse student population here.
My therapeutic lens tends to be Existential in nature in that I strive to help individuals find what feels most authentic to them, whether we're working on identity issues, career goals, or relationship struggles etc. I truly believe we all want to find purpose and fulfillment in everything we do. Life may throw us curve balls, but we always have choices. My goal is to help clients feel empowered in making the choices that will help them feel more connected to others, achieve a sense of competence and personal power, and fully embrace each moment on this planet. As Hunter S. Thompson once said, "Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"
